Tickets to this year's All-Star Week events in New York will be up for grabs when the T-Mobile All-Star FanFest Ticket Hunt begins Saturday.
The contest will begin around 10 a.m. ET on Saturday, when the first of a series of clues will be released through the All-Star Game Twitter account (@AllStarGame) and the Mets' Twitter account (@Mets). Each clue will lead fans to five locations throughout Manhattan.
The first eligible fan to arrive at each location and provide Major League Baseball representatives with the correct password, which will also be released in advanced through the above Twitter accounts, will win a prize package: four tickets to one day of T-Mobile All-Star FanFest, four tickets to Taco Bell All-Star Sunday and a voucher to receive an authenticated David Wright autographed baseball.
The contest is open to legal residents of the United States who are 18 years of age or older. The tickets to the T-Mobile All-Star Fanfest also include four fast lane bracelets and four food vouchers.
The All-Star FanFest will take place at the Jacob K. Javits Center, which will play host to more than 400,000 square feet of baseball attractions including exhibits from the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, batting cages, clinics, free autograph sessions with former Mets, MLB legends and Hall of Famers, memorabilia and more.
All-Star Sunday at Citi Field, meanwhile, will include the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game, which showcases may of the game's top prospects, as well as the 2013 Taco Bell All-Star Legends & Celebrity Softball Game, featuring stars from movies, music, TV and other forms of entertainment alongside former Major Leaguers.
